Jackie Carducci, GJHS Principal

Principal’s Message:


Hello Parents,

We would love to see you at our upcoming Open House, Thursday, Sept. 8, beginning at 6 p.m., in the Greenspun Junior High School Gym. This is a perfect opportunity to meet your childrens’ teachers and learn about their classroom expectations for your children.


Research from the National Coalition for Parent Involvement in Education shares that “no matter their income or background, students with involved parents are more likely to have higher grades and test scores, attend school regularly, have better social skills, show improved behavior and adapt well to school.”


Our staff and administration are looking forward to seeing you next week!


PROGRESS REPORTS AND REPORT CARDS


Parents/guardians can access student progress reports and report cards through Infinite Campus Parent Portal by clicking on the Documents Tab on the Index Menu. This method allows immediate access for parents/guardians to review students’ progress and grades. As parents/guardians have immediate access to grades through Campus Parent, schools will no longer print and distribute progress reports, and the District will no longer print and mail report cards home. Parents/Guardians who require a printed report may contact their student’s school to request a copy.
